Frances Conroy

In what could be a very fun piece of casting, Deadline reports that Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) is headed to the ABC pilot BAD MOM, where she will play the mother of Jenna Elfman’s character.

Bad Mom is a half-hour single camera comedy focusing on Julia (Elfman), whose two children were mostly raised by her mother (Conroy). One day Julia’s mom decides to reclaim her life, leaving Julia to raise her children herself.

Bad Mom was created by British writer/comedienne/actress Sharon Horgan, who will also star in the pilot.

Since Six Feet Under, Conroy has starred in the short-lived ABC drama Happy Town and guest-starred on such shows as Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother, and Grey’s Anatomy.
